Arnie love child scandal inspires ‘Law and Order: Special Victims Unit’ episode

New York: If reports are to be believed, then actor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s love child scandal, which led to the split between him and his estranged wife Maria Shriver, will serve as the inspiration for an upcoming episode of ‘Law and Order: Special Victims Unit’.

The former Governor of California fathered a child with a former housekeeper, who had worked in his family home for 20 years.

Sources close to ‘Special Victims Unit’ said the episode concerns a philanthropist in his 50s from one of "New York’s royal families" whose affair with someone in the family’s inner circle produced a love child, TV Line reported.

The crime investigated by the ‘Special Victims Unit’ detectives will involve the wealthy, entitled son of the philanthropist and his wife, reports the New York Post.

The Schwarzenegger-inspired ‘Special Victims Unit’ episode will air this fall during the show’s 13th season.
